Posted 8/4/11, and pictures updated 8/31/11, and 10/22/13.  Harrison was dumped out on our county road, and I saw him first on 7/15/11, but he wouldn't come to me, so I set some food and water out for him in his little hiding spot amidst a tree, branches, bushes, and greenbriar.  I set some more food out the next day, and he still wouldn't come to me, and then I didn't see him.  I checked one more time on 7/18/11, and he was back in his hiding spot, but now he had injuries, so I couldn't just leave him.  I had to lay down and push through the branches to get him by the back of his neck.  He was so terrified of me that he bit my wrist a few times (which can be normal for any inured animal), and started screaming, so I grabbed one of his back legs with my right hand, and held my left hand up to keep him away from my right hand.  After about 2 minutes of this, he saw I wasn't going to hurt him, and he let me pick him up by the back of his neck again, and carry him to my truck.  It appeared as if he had been hit by a vehicle.  His rectum was swollen, he had an open wound above his right eye, and he was limping on his right front leg.  I put him on oral antibiotics and antibiotic ointment on the wound above his eye.

As of 8/3/11 he is in much better shape.  The swelling has gone away, the wound above his eye is amost gone, and he is not limping with the front right leg anymore.  He is starting to play with the other puppies and dogs in the pen area I put him in, and when I walk up to him he comes up kissing my hand and lets me pet him.  He is making a lot of improvement in a short time.  He will also come to the fence now when I walk up to it.  He really enjoyed the can food I gave him to take his medicine.  He is also getting a lot of attention when volunteers come.

He has an underbite, so he may have Boxer in him.

About Tonya Griffith's Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

This is a small animal rescue for cats and dogs. I have several foster homes in various areas, and I also do courtesy postings for people who need help finding a home for their pet, which is about 80% successful. The pet doesn't have to enter a rescue or shelter and the owner is contacted, so they decide who their pet goes to. If a person can't send me pictures, and they don't live too far away, I will go and videotape the pet myself to place pictures on the internet, or have a volunteer get the pictures. There have been a few pets that haven't been able to find a home through this service, but it depends on what the pet is and who is looking on the internet. When we have space available we take transfers from a local kill animal shelter. We also step in and help people who find themselves with multiple animals and no way to pay to get them fixed. Usually I will get all the females fixed to get their circumstances under control, and in some cases I will also help with donated food when I have extra. If they want to find homes for some of the many pets they have accumulated, then I will place their pictures on the internet for them. We don't euthanize unless a pet is seriously ill.

Come Meet Our Pets...

It depends on who has the pet. We don't advertise our address to keep people from dumping animals on our road anymore than they usually do, especially since this is also where we live. I like to visit with a person on the phone first before letting them come meet the pet.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat adoption fees vary from $25 to $55 for males, and $25 to $70 for females, which pays for spay/neuter and vaccinations. Dog adoption fees vary from $25 to $115, depending on how much it cost for spay/neuter and vaccinations. Adoption contracts must be signed upon adoption approval and any pet history information is provided with each adoption.
